What did I do today? Played around with make-up.
Also, because I’m a fan of Harry Potter, I decided to do House Make-up (mainly eyeshadow haha). Here are the results:
I’ll probably end up making a YouTube tutorial for these, but here are some instructions for how to achieve these looks!
Prime your eyes. I don’t own an actual primer, but I use concealer and it achieves the same effect (which is making eyeshadow last longer).
Line your waterline. I’ve used black for all of them, but you don’t have to.
Slytherin: Take a dark green and cover your lid with it, but don’e go any farther out than the crease or the outer corner of your eye. Taking a thin brush and silver eyeshadow, line around the eyes while staying as close as you can on both the lid and below. I forgot to add mascara before taking the picture, but I kinda like it – it’s very subtle, like how Slytherins are cunning.
Ravenclaw: Using your finger, take some brown eyeshadow and dab it on the inner corner of your eye. Then, taking a dark blue colour, cover your lid with a normal applicator. Bring the blue out a little past the end of your eyebrow (it’s a reference to the fact that Ravenclaw’s mascot is a bird). If you need to, you can “edit” the wing with a make-up remover wipe, like I did. If you feel the brown isn’t enough, feel free to add more. Lastly, add mascara.
Hufflepuff: Take a bright yellow and coat your lid with it. Do a couple of coats, we want it to be bright and optimistic! Don’t go past your natural lid. Taking a black liquid eyeliner, line your lid as close to the lashline as you can – Hufflepuffs are modest. Add a flick to the end, to make it a little more awesome (like Tonks). Line below your lower lashes, but start about halfway, and add a second flick. Add mascara.
Gryffindor: Take a bright red and add it to the centre of your lid, and bring it up to your brow – Gryffindors are bold! Take a gold colour and add it to the inner and outer corners of your eye, also bringing up to the brown, and a little over the red. Because goold is usually used as a subtle colour, I had to add a few coats before I was happy. Lastly, add lots of mascara – BOLDNESS!!
I hope you like my designs, and please tell me if you tried it, and how it turned out!
